The Story of This Soundboard:
This SBD comes from Vince Perrotti who gave it to Peter Hedeman with following notes: "This was my 18th birthday and a friend of mine was allowed to patch in. He gave me the boards on the 18th. It was a great show, especially for those of us who made the trip up on 11.25.78 when Jerry fell ill." Vince also mentioned that "I noticed as time went by that no one had these boards. I know January '79 boards are rare and I caught 8 shows that month and they were all smoking." So, thanks, Vince!
I have no idea what EQ was done to the master cassette source.
The beginning of Shakedown Street is marred by soundboard glitches and adjustments. At about 45 seconds, it finally gave out until 1:25 or so. The 0:40 gap was patched with Source # 12200. Another gap of about 1.8 seconds a 10:33 was patched with the same source.
A tape flip 9:16 into Eyes of the World was also patched with about 20 seconds of Source #12200, and the audience provides the last minute or two of NFA through the end of the show. Several other glitches were smoothed over, adjusted, repaired or finegaled. You won't notice them.
The audience is just a hair slower than the SBD. I didn't alter the tempo of either recording, however. The difference is really not noticeable when strung together this way, although the patch in Eyes is not great, but that's really because the cassette tape wasn't moving steadily yet.
The checksums for the tracks on disc 3 do not match those for Source # 12200. Patching track by track introduces SBE's, you know?
